Guitarist Freddy J IV and drummer Van Campbell hammer their righteously raucous blues bashin’ into a set of strikingly distinct stand-alone smokers. These veterans of blues-rock outfits, respectively, Left Lane Cruiser and Black Diamond Heavies, don’t forget ballads as well. All executed with no sacrifice of power or grit.  Standouts include “Rat Time”, “Arthur's Hooked” and “War Dancers”.
